North Coast Centre for Alcoholics
NOCCA is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety of individual alcoholics who turn to the Fellowship for help. North Coast Centre for Alcoholics does not engage in the fields of alcoholism research, medical or psychiatric treatment, education, or advocacy in any form, although members may participate in such activities as individuals.The Fellowship has adopted a policy of “cooperation but not affiliation” with other organizations concerned with the problem of alcoholism
NOCCA experience has always been made available to all who sought it – business people, spiritual leaders, civic groups, law enforcement officers, health and welfare personnel, educators, representatives of military establishments, institutional authorities, representatives of organized labour, and many others. But North Coast Centre for Alcoholics never endorses, supports, becomes affiliated with, or expresses an opinion on the programs of others in the field of alcoholism, since such actions would be beyond the scope of the Fellowship’s primary purpose.
In Durban NOCCA’s relations with professional bodies, agencies, facilities and individuals involved with the problems of alcoholism are handled by members elected as officers by Groups, intergroups and regional assemblies. The nature of services offered by our organisation is to provide a 14 day stay in programme, whereby residents are exposed to the Alcoholics Anonymous Programme of Recovery, Audio – Visual Material on Alcoholism and are taken to local AA Meetings. The centre is open to all, irrespective of religion or race.
